Newsday: Greg Logan's article has more on Rick DiPietro's surgery with head coach Scott Gordon's comments along with Kyle Okposo moving to the line with Bill Guerin and Doug Weight.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
If Scott Gordon wants to change a forwards natural position it should be a veteran, not a young player like Okposo who did not look comfortable as a left wing against Montreal. All this does is put his right handed shot on the left side and more net to shoot at but everything else he did against Montreal he seemed out of synch.

This is a very questionable move by the coach. If Gordon wants him with older players he can move Guerin to the left or put him with Weight and move the captain to another line.

You do not change the position of a nineteen year old who struggled in college statistically with such a move one year ago when he was moved to center.
